Will You Let God Help You?
*Excuse my style of writing, but you must understand that I am worshipping God as I begin to write these testimonies!
Scripture says in 1 Peter 1:16:
“Because it is written,
Be ye holy;
for I am holy.”
*God can help you!
I just want to take a moment to lift up the name of JESUS. Please understand that I have to tell someone about this JESUS! There is just something about the name of JESUS! I have to give Him thanks! I have to lift Him up! He saved me! He set me free! He took away the pain I carried around on the inside for so long. He restored my joy. Glory! Glory to God in the highest! I am not going to let the devil or anyone stop me from proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ. There is power in the name of JESUS! Hallelujah!
Wow! Why the excitement you might ask? Well there’s this river of life flowing out of me, and it exceeds far beyond this testimony! I will calm down and share something that might seem simple to you, if it is so be it. I find that there is no small thing that the Lord does for me, and therefore I want to give Him thanks!
*The church I was attending at the time of this particular testimony was corporately having a 21 day fast at the beginning of the year. So I decided to be in unity and take part in it. Plus, it’s worth noting that I was desperately desiring this closeness I once had with God. I wanted that again! So day 1, I started praying, reading Scripture, worshipping, etc… Oh yeah, don’t forget smoking cigarettes!
Meanwhile, I remembered I had a book by Smith Wigglesworth. So I started reading it, and when I got to this one particular part it stood out to me. It says (quoting to the best of my remembrance),
“There is a holy seed in me,
and it is impossible for the seed
to produce anything but holy”!
He went on to explain in greater detail about holiness, power, and authority living in me!
As day 2, day 3, and day 4 are going along, I am pondering what the man of God said. Which by the way he explained well and lined it up with Scripture. It’s not that I weren’t taught these things, or that I didn’t know them. All I know is something happened to me on day 4 as I went to smoke a cigarette. I begin to see myself as God sees me. I plucked that cigarette up I’m the air as I went to light it, and said, I’m done! Let me tell you more than quitting smoking cigarettes happened for me that day. A Deliver came and brought deliverance to me. I mean for my soul, my heart, my mind!
I began to believe: there was no sin in me; I’m holy; that Jesus done it all for me; that God’s Word is Truth! There was no longer any condemnation as I was no longer being led by the flesh, but by the Spirit! Once again, I’m saying I began to see myself how God saw me- washed by the Blood of JESUS!
This event re-lit a fire in me, meaning everywhere I go I want to share the name of Jesus! I did go on to share the Gospel, to be a witness, an ambassador for Christ.
This Testimony continues and I ask you all to keep me in prayers as I continue to be used as an instrument to spread God’s love like 🔥 fire!
Let the Gospel of Jesus spread like fire everywhere we go Lord. Help us all to be a witness in Jesus name, Amen!
